Apple border is done

I made a big dent in my apple pie quilt project today.  All of the apples have now been appliqued onto the border.  I now have to decide what color to make the binding... whether I will repeat the red from the first border or pick up the green color from the darker leaves.  That is probably not an option because I am quite sure there isn't enough left.  Actually the quilting will have to be considered before the binding gets applied, but once I start the quilting, I'm going to be ready to finish the quilt, so knowing what fabric I will be using for the binding really does come before I begin quilting. 


  1. What a great idea and really cute too!

  2. Did you post the templates/directions of the apple border? How can I get them?

  3. It has been quite a while since I made this quilt. The apples were basically different sizes of the same apple. I may have made a freezer paper template, but that was a long time ago... probably didn't save the template. I ironed steam a seam on the fabric, cut out my apples then assembled them in random positions.
